Ep. 86 - The Divine Feminine - A Beacon Series Interview Ft. Clark Strand & Perdita Finn, co-authors of The Way of the Rose: The Radical Path of the Divine Feminine Hidden in the Rosary


Almost from the very moment of my initial awakening in the summer of 1995, I’ve had a hunger to learn, and reading was a critical source of nutrients for my ravenous mind. I’ve read many wonderful books since that day, and while my mind may not be as hungry, it still makes a healthy meal of many wonderful written works.

In the full scope of all the works I’ve read, there are those very special books that are more like profound life-events. I’m sure you understand my meaning. These are the books that place you in timeless spaces, moving beyond the realm of simple transference of information, or pleasurable stimulation. These are the works that become phenomena, and when you turn the last page your mind takes special note of the time and space in which you absorbed its message. Recently, I completed one such multifaceted work, so layered and rich that I reached out to the authors to see if they would visit with me on "Find the Good News." 

Enter my conversation Clark Strand & Perdita Finn, co-authors of the book “The Way of the Rose: The Radical Path of the Divine Feminine Hidden in the Rosary.” On the surface, this book appears to be about the Rosary—and it is about that—but I very quickly learned that it while it is about this cherished, predominantly Catholic form of prayer, this inspired work was about so much more.

”The Way of the Rose,” through the Rosary, reaches down through the historic ages of humankind, and further still into prehistory, sinking to the very formation of the earth, on deeper to the creation of the universe. In this dynamic and invigorating conversation, Clark & Perdita graciously share their intimate discoveries as they followed the promptings and messages of the Lady—or the Girl—around the world and through the ages to produce “The Way of the Rose,” a work which reveals cross-cultural connections of the Divine Feminine using poetic and prophetic beats, unlike any work I’ve encountered before. 

What intrigued me most of all about “The Way of the Rose,” and the story of an encounter that Clark shares, is the sideways nature in which their relationship began. As someone that has been using a Rosary as a part of my own prayer life, long before I made my cycle within the organized Catholic Church, it was refreshing to visit with people that have experienced such powerful promptings. An ongoing journey like that of Clark Strand & Perdita Finn longs to be shared, or in this instance, cries out across the ages to be born.

I enjoyed this conversation with Clark Strand and Perdita Finn. They were so genuine, kind, and so open to sharing the sweet aroma of this unfolding work called “The Way of the Rose.”

Before you listen to this episode, I encourage you to look for the string that’s running through your life or the common links in the chain of your existence that binds one thing to the next.  Stop for a moment on the beads that have formed around every sacred moment you’ve experienced. Gently go through them one-by-one. Maybe, if you stay in this garland long enough, you’ll see the presence of a loving mother somewhere along your way.

Now, tune your attention to this Good News Beacon, and press play on a little good news.
